Google Changing The OEM Agreement for Android to Require Regular Security Updates
Google is taking another step forward when it comes to manufactures and Android security updates. In a session at Google I/O this week, the company indicated that changes would be coming soon to the OEM agreement for Android, requiring more regular security updates. While the exact details weren’t laid out in the session nor what is meant by “regular”, it is clear that Google is trying to make sure that manufactures keep devices up to date with the latest security updates.
This also, in a roundabout way, would encourage manufactures to offer the latest versions of Android as the security updates are regular on the new versions.
